Roger Wine is our Senior Pastor with his wife Susan.
1986 was a miraculous year for me. I became a Christian, and the NY Mets won the World Series! Four years later I met the woman of my dreams, we became best friends, and now have been married for 25 incredible years. She is my True Blue Sue. We have been blessed with two amazing sons, Nolan and Nathaniel, that we adore.
We have served together through the years in Campus Ministry, Youth and Family Ministry, and leading a church replant in Syracuse NY. We are so grateful to our Abba Father for the experience we have had so far planting LifeChurch with the beautiful team He has brought together, and we believe the best is yet to come!
LifeKids Childrens Ministry is led by Jose and Claudete Rios.
Gab is also the Associate pastor.
Jose is a professional educator. They are both also the creator of the many holiday children plays.
We believe that God does not make mistakes. He puts us exactly where we need to be, and because we move around so much the verse we like for our family is Jeremiah 29:11 - 'For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'.
